Hey, good stuff -- "Signs and Portents", "A Voice in the Wilderness",
"Chrysalis"... -- and that's just the episodes with big space battles...

Anyway, us "lucky bastards" get one more episode, and then we have to
through _seven months_ before the next season starts. And JMS has said
S3 ends on a _big_ cliff-hanger, so the waiting is going to be _bad_.
Okay, so
the Yanks have had 3 or 4 months between episodes, but once the show
again, they'll only have to wait a week between #322 and #401.

Still, thank Valen that C4 has B5. They may have a thing about
kick-boxing and
knives, but if the ^%#$(*& [insert incredibly powerful expletive of your
here] BBC were showing the series, they'd give it to _Sky_ half-way
through and
there'd be a two-year gap between episodes!

Interesting thought for the numerically inclined -- the number of
episodes that
the network programmers have held back in each season of B5 have formed
Fibbionacci (sp?) series, thus:

Season 1 -- 1 episode held back
Season 2 -- 4 episodes held back
Season 3 -- 5 episodes held back

Wouldn't it be _awful_ for the North Americans amongst us if this kept
up? I
mean, can you imagine the screams if season 4 featured a Final _Nine_?
And a
Final _Fourteen_ for the final season?? That's almost too cruel to

Phil, on tenterhooks now that **** has appeared -- finally!
